Laundry Room Fun

Normally I would never take time to paint a laundry room. . . but since we are now going on snowed-in day No. 4, and we had some sheet rock work done to it last fall, (due to some minor water damage), I decided to take on the project. Now, because the laundry room is never really seen, I thought I would be creative and have some fun with it.

A couple chevron walls from my "b-boppin" inspirational folder :

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Wall

You can do this in just about any room.

 Step 1. Pick your wall (Mine, as mentioned earlier is a wall in the laundry room)

 Step 2. Measure out how many lines you want, then tape off. This is the trickiest and most time consuming part. I use FROG tape (I don't know what I would do without it). Having a level laser helps too.

 Step 3. Take a razor knife and cut the excess tape to get a smooth point

 Step 4. Paint your desired color between every other section. I chose a blue, which totally turned out gray!

 Step 5. By FAR the best part. . . REMOVE the tape and see your CREATION.

I LOVE leaving this door open now!
